Vic Sotto says he is not keen on joining politics



This early, many people are predicting that Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote will be the top grossing movie at the Metro Manila Film Festival, something that Vic Sotto is taking all in stride. "May sariling crowd si Senator Bong (Revilla) at may sarili din ako siguro 'lsquo;pag pinagsabi mo 'lsquo;yon doble doble ang kita [ng pelikula]," explained the seasoned actor-host.

Vic also downplayed Comedy Concert Queen Ai-Ai de las Alas'rsquo;s previous comment that she does not expect her film (Ang Tanging Ina N'rsquo;yo Last 'lsquo;Na To) to beat Vic'rsquo;s movie in the box office. "Patawa lang ni Ai-Ai 'lsquo;yon. Magkaibigan kami ni Ai-Ai. Ilang beses na rin kaming nagkasabay sa festival so pa-cute lang 'lsquo;yon," he said good-naturedly.

Vic was also asked if he intends on joining politics in the future like many of his colleagues. "Wala sa isip ko ang pulitika," he replied and added that he is content with being a supporter to his friends in showbiz who join politics. "Pwede naman kaming pumapel na mga supporter at saka tagabigay ng suporta." He said that he is not entirely closing his doors on the idea but for now, he does not see the need.

He was also asked about the rumored split with girlfriend Pia Guanio. "Kung anuman 'lsquo;yung personal kong buhay ngayon I can say that I am happy I am satisfied and I couldn'rsquo;t ask for more," he said. When some reporters asked him if his Christmas was going to be lonely, he replied, "Parating mainit. Alam mo 'lsquo;yung init at lamig nasa tao 'lsquo;yon, eh. Kung gusto mong malamig ang Pasko mo lalamig talaga pero kung gusto mong mainit kayang-kaya mong painitin."

Just like most celebrities, Vic said that he could not ask for anything more for himself this Christmas. "Sabi ko nga wala akong hangad. Ang kadalasang wish ko at inaasam ay para sa aking minamahal sa buhay, para sa aking mga anak, sa aking mga kaibigan sa ating mga kababayan, mga manonood ng pelikulang Pilipino. Hindi ako nagpapakabayani pero 'lsquo;yun ang sadyang katotohanan."
